At A.C. Moore we believe that we have a social responsibility to enhance the lives of people in the communities where we work and live and we encourage our Team Members to get involved and to embrace the spirit of volunteerism.
A.C. Moore developed the Crafting a Better World program to support national charitable organizations and non-profits. This program is designed to give crafters a way to give back to their community by doing what they enjoy most - crafting!
A.C. Moore has developed partnerships with national organizations to benefit the communities served by A.C. Moore stores. Our partnership provides these organizations with company wide support through collections, donations and help in building awareness for their cause. A.C. Moore is currently partnered with Easter Seals, American Cancer Society, and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. In these month-long donation campaigns, A.C. Moore helps raise funds for the organization in our store locations.
A.C. Moore is a national corporate sponsor for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. In our inaugural 2014 holiday campaign, our company donated 25,000 items to the communities of our stores, and collected an additional 54,000 toys from our generous customers!
A.C. Moore also partners with World Visions' Knit for Kids as an official drop-off location. Knit for Kids collects handmade knitted items which are given to children in need throughout the U.S. and world. To date, we have collected over 45,000 handmade items!
A.C. Moore partnered with Fresh Artists, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide art supplies and arts programming to underfunded schools by engaging children in philanthropy. A.C. Moore held chain wide Make & Give events for children to make art and donate it to the in-store Clothesline Art Sale. Art was then on sale in store locations and all money raised supported Fresh Artists. The A.C. Moore Foundation matched each customer donation, dollar for dollar, in support of saving art education.
A.C. Moore offers schools and non-profit organizations the Fundraise with A.C. Moore program - an opportunity for organizations to host in-store fundraising events.
Lastly, our store locations participate in a variety of community events including: Make a Wish Walk for Wishes, March of Dimes, Alex's Lemonade Stand events, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks, Easter Seals Walk with Me, and other local events to benefit their communities.
